About the dorm
Rebslagervej is one of our most modern residencies and is located in a very trendy area. The building is located on the border of Nordvest and Nørrebro, one of the most exciting quarters of Copenhagen, with lots of nightlife, bars, and restaurants. As a former factory building converted in 2016, the dorm’s facilities are very modern and have a slightly functional, inner-city chic feeling. Since all rooms are ensuite studio flats, Rebslagervej is a good accommodation option for independent-minded students or staff members who want to enjoy city life but value their private space. However, it is still easy to meet people, since every floor features a common room, where you can spend time with your friends and neighbours.
About the area
Rebslagervej is located in a residential area very close to bustling city streets, with amenities like gyms and public transport very close by. Access to the city centre is quick and easy. Since the dormitory is located in Nørrebro, a trendy area popular for going out, there are many bars and a lively music scene almost at your doorstep. A variety of shops can be found on and around local main street Nørrebrogade, and you can’t avoid chic cafés on almost every corner. Leafy Frederiksberg, one of the most attractive areas in Copenhagen due to its great variety of parks, cafés and shops, is also readily accessible by bike.
Things to do
The Nørrebro area is perhaps the most popular quarter for going out in Copenhagen. There are lots of places to eat, drink, dance and experience live music. But there is also much to see, for example the famous graveyard Assistenskirkegården, where celebrities and musicians are traditionally buried and the locals go for walks. Or the Red Square (Røde Plads), a hub for multicultural encounters and political rallies, as well as Nørrebrohallen, the local culture centre where many sports and music events take place.
Since Rebslagervej is one of our newer buildings, we expect that you treat the place as you would treat your own home—with care and respect. You are required to participate in scheduled cleaning and maintenance of the common areas. Also, each apartment has wooden floors that need to be treated with care, which includes avoiding getting them wet (e.g. with water from the bathroom) and not walking on them with high and/or sharp heels. Neglect or mistreatment of the apartments can have consequences for the return of your deposit.
Furniture and inventory
Please see the link to the inventory list here.
Please note: We never provide bedlinen, duvets, or pillows. Please bring or buy what you require. We also do not provide kitchen items (e.g. pots, pans, plates, etc.), however you will often find that previous tenants have left kitchen items for you to use. Therefore it is often worth moving in first and checking this before buying kitchen items.
All rooms at Rebslagervej have their own storage room. The storage room is included in the rental contract and covered by your rent. That means you are responsible for emptying and cleaning the storage room when moving out. You receive a separate key for the storage room with the same number as your room. All of your keys must be returned to the Housing Foundation when you move out.
Many utilities are included in the rent. However, you pay for internet. Students also pay for laundry. Please see your rental contract for details.
Internet is provided and you pay for it as a utility.
Laundry facilities are available in the basement. Tenants can pay with credit card directly for each wash.
